Is there a way to switch between working offline and online in Microsoft Outlook, while maintaining connection the Internet?  Also, does it have to involve closing down and restarting outlook, to make the switch?  Can that be done in MS Exchange?  I know it's possible if Outlook was using POP3, but I don't know if you can do that using Exchange.

You must close and restart Outlook to switch between offline and online UNLESS you are using Outlook 2003.

To choose the connection type when starting go into the email account configuration with Exchange (either Tools, Services in Outlook 2000 or Tools, Email Accounts, View or Change Existing Email Accounts in Outlook 2002 and 2003). In the More Settings (or Advanced Settings) option, there's an option to "choose the connection type when starting".
